Sounds good, look forward to seeing some pictures of it.

What type of intercooler are you looking at putting on it? Front mount or top mount?

Thanks, Still havent managed to get around to uploading pics, dont get much pc use these days, but i will soon haha.

Top mount, and getting a hood scoop, but thats a little down my list at the moment, need some sliders, my steps are all folded up and about ready to crush into my sills..

Thanks commodore665, ive always loved the shape and performance of the 80's and 100 series cruisers, and with the big engine and big parts, goes like a beast offroad :)

About 10 days after i got the beast, went out playing after some heavy rains with my worn down road tyres, and this was the result


I was resting on my front axle, suspension and bullbar, the hole ate my tyre. Luckily a mate in a monster 80 series came and winched me out :D

Went out for an adventure on some local tracks id never been on, went through half a dozen sketchy, deep mud puddles and found a chance to do some flexing.



And another day recently, went out to play on the local clay flat track after alot of rain :)

Thats all for the moment, do have more on my phone, but it doesn't want to show them in the upload screen..

This past weekend, i tagged along with my friends family for a camping/4wding trip up the Wattagans National Park/Onley State forest. Had a ball, even on the limted amount of tough tracks we know of at the moment (Creek Road, Old Mill road/New road and Ironman Pt Trail). Will do a bigger write up, and upload more photos into a new thread at somestage.


These 2 pics were just having a play on some dirt mounds, seeing how much flex i could get comfortably get.


Off Old Mill Road/New Road theres a track that connects up to bowmans road, at the bottom theres a creek crossing where all the root system from the bank has washed into the way, 4 of us tried to squeeze around it, this was my result. The other 3 trucks also copped panel damage. But, its all part of the game :)

If anyone reads this, does anyone know of any good trails up around the State Forest just north north west of Nabiac NSW? Going to a relatives house this long weekend but cant find any maps online beside the basic main forestry roads? Tried 4x4earth and google custom maps but couldnt find any, thanks.
